Elliott ‘Muselk’ Watkins has set out on claiming a new Fortnite world record for himself by winning the most consecutive games without firing a single bullet, and by his accounts, he’s managed to smash it out of the park.

Muselk is no stranger to trying to break anything and everything related to Fortnite. Whether it’s a wacky glitch from within the game, or a random record someone has set, Muselk tasks himself with trying to break it.

Now, the Australian YouTuber may have just added another quirky gem to his illustrious Fortnite crown. He set out to break the world record for “how many games you can win in a row without using a single weapon,” and by his numbers, he did just that.

Muselk didn’t fire a single bullet in his quest for a new Fortnite world record.

In an April 9 video, Muselk detailed just how he set about breaking this rather obscure record. According to his research, it was three wins with no weapons ⁠— which can be traced back to Tim ‘Bizzle’ Miller’s attempt during the Fortnite World Cup in 2019.

“Step 1: we get max material. Step 2: we head down to the swamp and get as many fish as we can. Step 3: we use the fish to win the game.”

He admitted it was “easier said than done,” but after weeks of trying, he was determined. His previous attempts had all been thwarted after being “inevitably stream sniped” by viewers as he tried to set the record live on broadcast.

However, as soon as he made the switch to offline, Muselk’s fortunes turned in his favor. He found his groove ⁠— farming materials, getting fish, finding a helicopter, and floating above the final circle.

One win turned into two, and he was getting momentum to take Bizzle’s record away. While he did have to use his pickaxe to secure a kill in one game, he otherwise did it without drawing blood, nailing five games in a row to set a record.

His sixth game was cut short rather unceremoniously, getting flanked and taken down very early in the game before he could farm up his materials. However, he set out, and did what he wanted to do.

While there’s no continuous stream to make sure that he didn’t cut out any games in between, by all accounts, his record will hold true.

It’ll take a dedicated player to try and topple it. However, now that Muselk has revealed his strat book, it might not be long until someone comes along and tries to challenge him for it.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
